You’re not committed to one style of riding—you’re just as likely to hit flow trails after work as you are to bikepack gnarly singletrack on the weekends. You like to keep your options open, and Horsethief SLX shares that philosophy. The Split Pivot rear suspension system increases pedaling and braking efficiency, while the 120mm-travel rear suspension and 140mm fork provide plenty of insurance for bold lines. Horsethief accommodates 29" or 27.5 plus wheels and a flip chip so you can fine-tune it to suit your riding style and favorite trails. To top it all off, the smooth-shifting Shimano SLX group and powerful, four-piston braking leave you with two fewer things to worry about in the world. Horsethief is a trail bike that keeps the good times rolling.
A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.
Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.
Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
